Adidas today officially released the collection inspired by the architecture and landscape of New York, that Angelique Kerber, Ana Ivanovic and Simona Halep will wear at the 2016 US Open.
The apparel features a colorful triangular print, reflecting the environment, energy and vibrancy of the host city. The striking design is accompanied by ClimaLite technology, which encourages quick drying of sweat, and ventilating Climacool materials, that help the body regulate its temperature in the heat.
The women’s collection includes six key pieces and colorful separates can be combined with both printed and solid items. There’s the Adidas Fall Club Racer Tank, with triangles in different shades of tech steel and flash red, and the solid option, the Adidas Fall Pro Tank.
The boldest piece in the collection are the Adidas Fall Pro Shorts, with the geometric print peeking through a woven mesh layer.
Another fashion-forward piece are the asymmetrical Adidas Fall Pro Skirt Leggings, that come with a detachable skirt.
Ana Ivanovic, who will wear the Adidas Fall Pro Dress during her 13th appearance at the US Open, has nothing but praise for her new clothes:
The US Open is an extremely special tournament to me, in one of my favourite cities, so it’s great to be able to bring a little piece of that onto the court with my Adizero outfit. New York is notoriously humid in summer, but the cooling fabrics and technologies in my Adidas dress are amazing and allow me to focus on my game.
Today Adidas also launched the Adizero Ubersonic 2 Athena women’s tennis shoes, the debut release from the FW16 Energy Pack. The limited-edition collection features four unique iterations of the Adidas Ubersonic footwear, each using inspirational stories from figures of mythology and culture. The other three additions to the FW16 Energy Pack will be revealed later this season.
What do you say about the 2016 US Open Adizero range inspired by New York City’s skyline? Which piece of clothing is your favorite? I love the eye-catching print and the reinvented shape of racerback in tanks and the dress, while my favorite items are the dress and bold shorts, especially those with white overlay.
